Re: Does anyone use the engine with one letter command line flags?

isn't this because of some fancy bash shell script which should still work after removing boost_program_options?! no :( The bashcomp systems so far don't try to get the available args, esp. cause there is no standard how to get them nor how to parse them. Also when you would just execute `myprogram...

Re: Does anyone use the engine with one letter command line flags?

D:

so i am the only one who misses all the fancy boost cmdline features?
like `spring --list-co` gets autocompleted to `spring --list-co[nfig-vars]`


RIP then :'(

Re: Desync with table iterating using pairs() in synced code

Oh I twisted the 512 with a result of a benchmark I did, the actual limit is 64 chars. The responsible function is the following and has another issue: static inline lua_Hash calchash(const char *str, size_t l) { lua_Hash h = cast(unsigned int, l); /* seed */ size_t step = (l>>5)+1; /* if string is ...

not the start, it will max use 512 chars for the hash, and when a string is longer it will just use each n'th char.

Re: Desync with table iterating using pairs() in synced code

Iteration with "normal" data types as keys is perfectly safe. Avoiding pairs() in synced code is not a good way to solve this imo, its too useful. 1. Spring already prints warnings for the 100% sure unsyncing types (tables, userdata, ...) 2. the code that causes the desync described in mantis ticke...

Re: switch to tcp / add support for it?

first a fact: Spring really implements TCP on top of UDP, meaning it won't process packets out of order. Only games that don't use a synced gamestate can do so. And so the main reason for UDP is not valid for Spring. Still there are some pros & cons for both UDP & TCP: UDP pros: * you have exact con...

It would be a design decision.
But then all such "return a piece" callins would need such a set-function.
And i am too lazy to write those for all.

Re: What should be the unit radius?

Would it be OK if I made a Lua interface to set this and untangled it from the existing Lua interface used to set the collision radius? No, it wouldn't be okay. You already see at unitRadius that such values shouldn't be user-configurable at all (when possible).* Only reasons for runtime updating i...

Re: ThreadWorkers CPU usage

`accumulated` is the time when you add the time of each thread -> time a single thread would need to compute the task `real` is the time that was really spend on the task -> multi threaded performance So `real` is always < `accumulated` and 'accumulated`/`real` is near cpu core count And when you wa...
